Subject: Hunter vs. Hucker
Yes, Chris Hucker's one-star anti-Hunter campaign is well documented across many of these matrix recordings. It's too bad the Chris Hucker is completely wrong about the whole purpose for Hunter's Miller SDB/killer AUD layerings. He isn't doing this just to pointlessly add audience noise on top of a soundboard--he is doing it to even the sound out and make the music BETTER. Even Charlie Miller can't make dusty 2- and 4-track 'work' tapes sound perfect. These were not meant to be studio-quality releases; they were tapes made for the band to play back and check out their jams, and most of the time they didn't even do that. It was just routine to record the shows (thanks Owsley and Dan). They weren't trying to record official live releases every single night. So, many SDBs from the post-Betty, pre-digital period were recorded using only a couple of tracks instead of 24-track pro recordings (like you hear on Europe '72). These late-'70s/early-'80 boards sound flat and lifeless. Too much or too little bass, whacked out levels, overpowering Jerry or kick drums, etc. Hunter fixes this by evening out the sound with a thin, crispy, kickass AUD that was taped by a pro (not likely to capture a lot of crowd noise in the first place). In a Seamons Matrix, instruments come through better, brighter, and vocals are more evenly blended. Suddenly, the sound goes from low to hi-fi. All thanks to Hunter.
So Chris, get informed, and stop leaving rants based on a totally incorrect position.
Subject: ciff fucker 1 star???? !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!stop it !
5 stars just for defiling the sacrad name of hunter seamons.
matrix is as close to being IN Front of the band
hearing the monitors in front, the 1000's of heads cheering behind, its a "reality" i can go visit whenever.
my ears were not 20-40 ft up a pole(Aud) nor were they "at" every microphone (sound board)
perhap u need to take some LSD to help stop being so anal , just listen & enjoy.
stop jerking off your brain to all of us.
stop your whinin& belly achin u sissy, grow up.
Subject: Why complain all the time? It's not good for your health
And it gets Soooooooooo Old. Very boring, even more boring than people that hype their first show.
if you think this matrix is a sacralidge, quit your poo pooing and go listen to the umpteen other copies of it.
go find the strait source sbd if you must
I love fall 79 and a good matrix

Subject: Troll-boy movie about Cliff Hucker
Cliff Hucker is a Grateful Dead troll factory. Cliff was born to "live to hate". Cliff is a Troll's troll.
Hunter Seamons created a nice sounding matrix for this show. Thanks Hunter!
Never mind the wrath of Cliff. Instead, have a good laugh - at Cliffy's expense. View the 3-minute movie Cliff made about his sicko Troll-boy.

Subject: A sacrilege...
Adding crowd noise to a pristine Charlie Miller soundboard is a faux pas. Would you put ice in a glass of fine wine?
This is cheesy, it's like adding a laugh-track to a television sit com...
Subject: Cliff Hucker doesn't know how to spell or see the light of
multiple sources... not to mention a job well done by mr. seamons on many many matrix's for all us heads to reap freely. btw, it's sacrilegious son
anyway, enough with the children. thanks Hunter I always appreciate your work, interesting to see you are using FCP to create your matrix's having used it a bit it myself makes sense.
keep on cranking em out, i love em.
Subject: Hey, thanks SDH!
Yeah, this one does have that Jacob's Ladder sort of edge to it...all the way up to the top of Franklin's Tower! Can't get much more heavenly from that place on high...
Subject: Not THAT'S what I'm talkin' bout
Finally, this show has gotten the matrix treatment it so richly deserves. Previous one had some serious issues regarding tracking, but this one is seemless. I will save you from my typical endless rambling about this, save to say that there are more than a few moments here where I can honestly say I saw the heavens open up and the voices of angels cascade down upon me. If you're not a matrix fan I don't know what to tell you. If you are, this one is a keeper.
